I'm a huge fan of time lapse videos. I love how they can show the world from a totally unique perspective. This video of the Milky Way was shot from the top of El Teide, the highest mountain in Spain, by photographer Terje Sorgjerd.

The universe is a beautiful place. It's one of the great tragedies of modern life that our light pollution robs most of us of the ability to see this when we look up into the sky at night.
